Album Notes
Richard Leo Johnson

With critical acclaim from sources such as: “The New York Times”, “The Washington Post”, “The Los Angeles Times,” “Downbeat”, “Jazz Times”, “Playboy”, “NPR-Fresh Air”“The Denver Post”, “Jazziz”, “WNYC”, “Echoes-PRI”, “The Dallas Morning News” “Entertainment Weekly”, “Detroit News and Free Press” Richard Leo Johnson’s latest installment, “Celeste” reaffirms his commitment to originality and passion for his craft

Richard's newest release is the third installment in a series of mythical characters.
The first in the series was the highly acclaimed "The Legend of Vernon McAlister" followed by "Who Knew Charlie Shoe".

Now we have "Celeste".

Using a one-of-a-kind instrument provided by Martin Guitars, the "Alien" guitar is both visually and structurally unique.
Artist, Michael Brolly, designed and built the guitar.
Michael has had penchant for the alien theme for years and has created a large body of work based on that concept.

Michael was commissioned by Martin to build a guitar for Chris Martin III.
The result was an acoustic guitar with a theremin built into the body.
Soon thereafter arrangements were made to have his instrument shipped to Savannah for Richard to make a recording.

The resulting body of work on "Celeste" is a mix of haunting, mysterious, and sonically unique music that defies any style or category. This is an earmark of Richard's music as cited by most of his reviews...a singular voice in the world of the guitar.
Now with the added twist of the theremin and the blending of the sonic qualities of the two instruments, we have a perfect storm for yet another amazing recording by this distinctive artist.
